Blow-Up: five artists at {Poem88}

April 6 to May 25, 2013

opening reception: Saturday, April 6, 7 pm
artist talk: Sat 27 April, 2pm

Taking its name from the classic 1966 Antonioni film, Blow-Up features the work of five artists: Nikita Gale, In Kyoung Chun, Sharon Shapiro, Ben Steele, and Nancy VanDevender. Each artist explores aspects of cinematic language or storytelling, but more specific to the film, is an exploration of non-resolution. Both physically and psychologically, meaning is subverted and questioned: the blow-up does not yield clarity and the protagonist remains aimless. In paintings, drawings, installation and text-based works, this existential question is addressed.
